MakeupDrop Silicone Applicator Review

I have been seeing these types of applicators everywhere online for a while now and I have been really wanting to try it for myself to see what all the fuss is about! These products get very mixed reviews, people either absolutely love it or they hate it and I have to say, I have been actually really liking it!

This is the MakeupDrop Silicone Sponge, it's available at Boots and has been designed to eliminate wasted makeup and skincare. Sponge applicators can soak up large amounts of products but with this, it will not soak up any product! I like that this can also be used for skincare, I would have never thought to have used it for this but it does so many things! They claim that you only need half the amount of product compared to when using with a traditional sponge or brush so I couldn't wait to test out this claim. 

They recommend to apply makeup in soft circular motions to blend and achieve even coverage but after applying around with this for a few weeks now, I personally prefer to use a swiping motion as it find that this distributes the product better and you can achieve a flawless finish doing it this way. It did get some getting used to as I had been so used to using a sponge in a dab-ing motion but I have really liking the results with this. It is very soft on the skin and I find it easy to hold and apply products to the face. The shape is great too as it is a teardrop so you can use with under the eyes if you wanted to as it would fit perfectly towards the inner corner. 

After seeing so many bad reviews of different brands' silicone applicators I was expecting to not like it but you can achieve a great medium to full coverage with this. It does take a little longer to apply your foundation with but the results are worth it! Now that I have got the hang of it, I can get a really even coverage with it and it works brilliantly with all of my liquid foundations. You definitely don't need half as much foundation as you would with a traditional sponge and I love how easy it is to clean, all you need is soap and water! 

I also have been loving it to apply my moisturiser with as many of them are in jars and I find it much more sanitary to dip into it with than with my fingers. The Makeup Drop is cruelty-free, non-toxic and free from parabens. It retails for £14 at Boots - HERE.
